It is with great delight we and 48 other UK music blogs present to you the Blog Sound of 2013 Poll as organised by Robin and Andy from Breaking More Waves and The Von Pip Musical Express respectively.
This poll was designed as a complimentary alternative to the BBC’s Sound Of Poll, Robin and Andy set out in 2011 to ask the UK music blogosphere for their top 5 emerging artists. This is what they came up with. It’s cool to see acts like Alt-J, Daughter and Lucy Rose on here before they were tipped elsewhere. It’s through polls like this that blogs get a chance to prove they are worth their salt, it’s a real pleasure to be asked to chip in.
This year 49 blogs cast votes for over 170 artists and below are the top 15. This is a phenomenal list of acts and if you are in need of updating your music radar, then start here. The winners will be announced in the new year.
